This Special Topic includes a collection of articles focused on novel quantum phenomena and applications of quantum materials and their superlattices. These materials include magnonic, excitonic, topological, and other exotic material systems, and each class of material presents advanced quantum properties that are not present in conventional material systems. Especially when they are stacked onto each other, their behavior can be further engineered by a relative alignment of subsequent quantum layers. A myriad of properties resulting from quantum materials and their various stacking possibilities opens a new frontier in the world of quantum information science and technologies.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum phenomena in 2D superlattices and Moire structures
- Quantum effects in Quantum materials
- Quantum applications using 2D superlattices and other quantum materials
- Advances in novel 2D magnetic superlattices or new emergent 2D magnetic systems
- Novel high-quality and theory-driven research opening new directions in 2D superlattices

About the Journal
Applied Physics Reviews (APR) features articles on important and current topics in experimental or theoretical research in applied physics or applications of physics to other branches of science and engineering. APR publishes the following types of articles:
- Original Research: An article reporting on an important and novel research study of high quality and general interest to the applied physics community.
- Reviews: This type of article can either be an authoritative, comprehensive review of established areas of applied physics, or a short timely review of recent advances in established fields or new and emerging areas of applied physics.
Manuscripts considered for publications in Applied Physics Reviews are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that advance understanding in the current status of applied physics. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer review process. The Applied Physics Reviews Editor’s Team will issue a final decision on the submitted manuscripts.
Manuscripts must be submitted through Applied Physics Reviews online submission system (PXP). Please select the Special Topic “Quantum materials and 2D superlattices” to submit your manuscript for consideration in this Special Topic.
